About Mental Health Awareness Month
This May, the Menlo Park Library is partnering with San Mateo County Health and other organizations throughout the area in celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month (MHAM).  Join us in the effort to increase awareness and inspire action to reduce stigma against those with mental health and substance use conditions.
